Ah the rednecks are drawin'
Their lines in East Tennessee
Their cannons are primed
And they're fit to be tied I believe

The man in the grey flannel suit
Does not walk on the street
Say does anyone know
What became of the old Opry

The outlaws are taking
An axe to the old hangin' tree
Traded their guns
for a guitar and two lids of tea

They swear in a slow Texas drawl
All the killin' is done
I believe them by God
But I'm keepin' my back to the sun

Tomorrow is out of sight
Yesterday's dead and gone
You never knew how right you were
The night you wrote that song

A truck drivin' man makes his stop
Where the coffee is free
El Paso this morning
Tonight it will be Tennessee

Spends all his miles
On the dials of a poppin' CB
Does anyone know
What became of ole Ralph Emery

The blacks and chicanos
Are telling the indians how
The white eye is the devil
It looks like one hell of a row

Shaking my head I retreat
From the sacred pow wow
I am marching on Ireland
It is making some sense to me now

Yesterdays news is old news
The skies are all gray

How I long to be in those East Texas woods
I would be in those old piney woods if I could
On a hot summer mornin' down Centerville Way
the windows rolled down in my old Chevrolet

Cruisin' the backroads with nothin' but time
three nickels short of having a dime
miles from the highway, no hill left to climb
Me and the whisperin' pine

..I remember..


AD.



This is tomorrow.
